In picture, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia

The Delhi government is expected to go against central ‘Indian Education Service’ and a centralised induction programme including several proposals on higher education in the draft New Education Policy (NEP)

Different views were presented on the proposals during a meeting of Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also holds the education portfolio, with several professors and vice-chancellors of Delhi Technological University, National Law University, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University and the head of Indian Institute of Information Technology, Delhi.

Government is against the centralised service for teachers

  • The government may oppose proposals on centralised service for teachers as it may result in frequent transfers, according to sources
  • The 43-page report of recommendations for the National Education Policy on Higher Education posted by the HRD ministry for review proposes a common “induction” for college teachers
  • The government is also against restricting the number of colleges that can be affiliated to a university.
